The Canadian politics thread
Am I the only guy extremely amused by lack of balls by the Liberal party?
Every chance they have to bring down the Conservatives and force an election, they back out. Latest vote on the budget, most Liberals abstain, allowing the budget to pass.
The Bloc is pretty much voting against the Conservatives, and so is the NDP. Actually, the NDP is having so much fun taking potshots at Liberals, and I think winning a lot of votes from the more left leaning Liberals on issues like environment, social programs, even Afghanistan.
The Liberals are claiming to be waiting for the right moment and when they are ready to bring down the Conservatives. I'm wondering when that will ever be, as every month goes by, more the Conservatives solidify their hold on the government, and the Canadian public to get used to that Harper isn't the ultra right wing nutjob that the Liberals tried to paint him as.
On other note, so called NAFTAgate in which a leak from Canadian govt implicated Obama who is running on protectionist agenda on economics but apparently told the Canadians that it's all rhetoric might do some damage. Obama may have lost Ohio nomination in this issue.
Will be interesting how this plays out. On other hand, renegotiating NAFTA will kill a lot of Canadian economy...
Well, at least Afghanistan is a go until 2011...
